The Animal Migration course 2017

Last Friday the course in Ecology of Animal Migration ended. An all time high of 41 students from all around the world (all continents except Antarctica included) participated in both lectures and practical exercises covering various aspects of animal migration. But most important of all, it was a great opportunity to meet and network with other PhD students and authorities within the field.

During the two first days all students could enjoy listening to each other’s research. This paved the road for further stimulating discussions during the course among the students, but also together with lectures at the department and invited speakers.

We were very happy to welcome back guest lectures; Florian Muijers (former course participant), John McNamara, Peter Marra, Raymond Klaasen, Tim Guilford and Jan van Gils (former course participant). Also, we were very happy to have many new faces with us that we hope to see again; Aislinn Pearson (former course participant), Chris Guglielmo, Yolanda Morbey, Kasper Thorup (former course participant), Kristen Ruegg (former course participant) and Lucy Hawks. And of course we want to thank all the in-house lectures.

Apart from the activities at the Ecology Building, where most of the course took place, the students got the opportunity to visit Falsterbo Bird Observatory and Lund University’s field station Stensoffa. On the last Thursday enjoyed a wonderful buffet from Restaurant Bryggan in the Ecology Building.

Lastly, thanks to all you who participated in the course! Surly many new friendships have been made and hopefully also seeds for future collaborations.
